Questions Banner actual.jpg

Don’t forget that these questions are also released on tumblr as our Weekly Questions! That means twice the discussion! Feel free to use these questions as conversation starters and get to know your fellow Bond Fans!

1.       Fanwork creators: How do you expand and elaborate on a character while still keeping them within the framework of the film? What’s that process like for you?
2.       As a fan, what made you start shipping 00Q? If you’ve been shipping it for a while, what about it has caught your attention and given this fandom longevity for you?
3.       How does Mi6 celebrate birthdays? Is it the requisite office cake? Do the 00 division pull pranks? Does Q branch allow the birthday person to play with some higher grade explosives?
4.       What kinds of music do Bond and Q enjoy?

1.       What are some of your favorite aspects of Bond canon that you think don't get enough appreciation? This could be anything from underrated scenes, certain characters, certain books/movies...whatever you love that needs more love!

2.       What kinds of meta and resources have you found informative and helpful? From what kind of gun that Russian assassin should be wielding to which Nando’s is closest to MI6 to what Bond’s canonical favorite food is, fanworkers often have questions that need answers. If you’ve found some great sources of helpful info, share them around!

3.       What are your headcanons about Eve and her job? What is her greatest accomplishment that we don’t know about?

4.       If you could change any one thing in the Bond franchise, what would it be?

Is it February already? The first month of the year has flown by, and here at Mi6 Café we’ve been busy hosting movie livestreams and book clubs, as well as introducing the new monthly challenges! On top of all of that, we have our shiny new Last Drabble Writer Standing challenge that is going to go live during February – keep an eye out on the Comm LJ and Tumblr as we will be posting announcements on both so you don’t miss them!

Anon commenting is on so you don’t need an account to join in the fun! If you are using anon comments, if you could put your name/handle in the subject line/body of the comments that would be fab (just so everyone knows who they are talking to!)

Weekly Recs

We’re debuting a new rec system, the fanwork rec form! It’s an easy to fill in form that allows you to rec your favourite fanworks for our monthly rec theme! We will then post the results of your recs with the next monthly chat post for everyone to view and enjoy!

Any paring, any rating, any genre! Go wild and show some love for those works that have kick-started the fandom following the release of Spectre!

Note: As the rec form is new, if you have any trouble reccing your fanworks please don't hesitate to get in contact with any of the mods!

This Month’s questions

Don’t forget that these questions are also released on tumblr as our Weekly Questions! That means twice the discussion! Feel free to use these questions as conversation starters and get to know your fellow Bond Fans!

1.       What are some of your favorite aspects of Bond fanon? Are there any aspects that (respectfully!) you don’t engage in yourself, or prefer not to read?
2.       If they were married for 5 years, what would Q and Bond give each other on their anniversary?
3.       How does Spectre change 00Q as a pairing for you? If you create fanworks, are you rolling around happily in the new content, are you in full Fix-It mode coupled with a healthy dose of "THAT WAS A STUPID-ASS DECISION AND I'M ELECTING TO IGNORE IT", are you struggling to incorporate the new versions of the characters with the ones you already had in your head...? How has Spectre impacted your 00Q shipping?
4.       What does Tanner do all day and what is his greatest accomplishment that we don't know about?
